Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk are set to clash for the undisputed heavyweight title in March of 2023 in Saudi Arabia.

The report comes courtesy of Mike Coppinger of ESPN.

The pair initially looked to face-off at the end of 2022 before the Ukrainian ruled himself out through injury. Fury will now take on Dereck Chisora for a third time on December 3rd.

Saudi Arabia has emerged as a leading contender to host boxing’s biggest nights in recent years.

The country has already staged two major heavyweight title fights, the first being Anthony Joshua‘s rematch with Andy Ruiz Jnr in Riyadh three years ago.

The second came two months ago when Usyk landed his second victory over Joshua in as many fights.

A potential fight between the Ukrainian and Fury would crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion in two decades.
